Things to Know About the New Quantum Browser

Firefox Quanutm release firefox 57

This is in the form of Project Quantum, Mozilla has changed the soul of their open-source web browser. When people use Firefox, Google's search box will be on the launch page, prompting users to type in valuable queries that Google can sell ads against.

Until 2011, Firefox held second-place in the global internet browser market share behind Internet Explorer. Firefox 57 combines the address and search bars - for new installations at least; existing users who miss the latter can restore it - reduces the clutter at the top of the window, and debuts a reworked new tab page.

Firefox Quantum is now available on Windows, Mac and Linux, with iOS and Android versions set to arrive in the future. Developers have been tinkering with the test version over the past several weeks to let Mozilla know if there are any bugs or security holes prior to Tuesday's public release. Previously, Google was the default on Firefox browsers.

Mozilla today delivered a re-engineered Firefox, branded "Quantum", that it claims is twice as fast as just a few months earlier, and unveiled a re-drawn UI (user interface) with minimalist leanings. Bryant is a fellow in Mozilla's Emerging Technologies organization.

Mozilla says they have doubled Firefox's speed since previous year.

Paper tenners: When you have to use the old £10 notes by
The Bank introduced the paper £10 note featuring Charles Darwin in 2000, and it rolled out the new Jane Austen notes in September. Around 55 per cent of the £10 notes in current circulation are made from polymer, while the rest - 359 million - are paper.

Firefox says this new version is 2x faster than before, while uses 30% less memory than Chrome and comes with "truly private browsing with tracking protection".

In a blog post, Mozilla said Firefox's default search engine will be Google in the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Quantum CSS leverages the multi-core processors in our modern computing rigs, parallelizing work across all cores. This lower memory footprint is most noticeable when opening multiple tabs (which all of us frequently do), as users won't see a drag on performance or crippling memory and CPU usage that can often cripple Chrome.

Here's a video that shows some of the changes. Everything from the UI (now codenamed Photon) to the underlying browser engine (Servo) has been built new, from the ground up. Indeed, three of the four past releases (Firefox 53, Firefox 54, and Firefox 55) included Quantum improvements.

It also features content recommendations from the reading-list app Pocket. Since 2014, Yahoo has been the default browser on Firefox.
